The Meteorite Memos
Sketch of the secret, military death camp at the heart of the Lt-Colonel Kokolo Barracks, drawn for the poet by the child soldier Kaloba, whom the former encountered in Congo- Brazzaville where its author died while in hiding after deserting his post during his second, month-long secondment as Chief of Station to ‘la cave’. Accused by General Yav Philémon (succeeding his first secondment), of feeding, watering and praying with the enemy, he retorted, he had not been trained as a soldier simply to watch over a dungeon in which compatriots of his were left to perish, eventually fleeing with Lukuke Daniel (carrying the injured body of one of ‘the farm’s’ survivors, Colonel Lumumba Onangando, on his back). Fearing subsequent international exposure of this extermination camp, Kabila Joseph sent in a battalion to destroy all remaining prisoners prior to shutting it down (consoling himself with the arrest and assault of the two deserters’ wives), and returning the property to the hands of its previous owner (Baramoto).

As one of the founders of the democratic opposition in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly known as Zaire), he was repeatedly tempted with offers of ministerial portfolios under Mobutu's kleptocracy, as well as recommendations for various lucrative CEO chairmanships during Kabila's regime. However, he chose to reject these inducements in favour of a campaign of conscience. He expressed his critical views of government policy through newspaper articles written under a vibrant cast of pseudonyms.
